Venom – Absolute Carnage | Comics

Cletus Kasady is back from dead to unleash "Absolute Carnage", with Venom is caught between saving his son and stopping him.

Fighting against mystical beings during "War of the Realms" lately, Eddie Brock got separated from his Venom symbiote and is free now. He wonders whether he was turned into a monster by his other or his symbiote became evil due to his influence. He checks on his son Dylan Brock to realize that the boy has a fever and needs to be taken care of.

Having violent hallucinations of Klyntar in his head, Brock shows up at Daily Globe to meet their editor-in-chief, Clark. Though he is grateful to Eddie for his time here as an intern, he can't hire him because of past criminal records. However, he asks Brock if he can solve a case of missing kids without killing anyone, only then can they discuss about a job.

Using his old investigative journalist skills, Brock goes to a stash house in New York's seedy underbelly to see if they know anything about missing kids. Seeing no guards and blood on door handle, Eddie becomes very cautions and his inner Venom kicks in. Acting reckless, he notices a pile of cash and dead gang members on floor, all soaked in blood.

Soon as he gets hit by a baseball bat, Brock came to his senses and brutally fought back a group of people with black eyes and crimson spirals. Beating them, he hears children screaming and steps into next room to find out Emill Gregg AKA Sin-Eater is apparently back from dead and standing on a sigil of blood, resurrected by Knull, God of symbiotes.

He reveals that his long-time enemy Cletus Kasady AKA Carnage is also resurrected by a cult of Knull called Church of the New Darkness and bonded with Grendel symbiote. Eddie beats down Sin-Eater to a pulp before returning to Daily Globe, fully covered in blood upon rescuing all thirteen missing children to get some cash to take care of his son.

Kasady starts hunting down every former symbiote hosts; Brock tries to get away from New York City his son Dylan. Venom symbiote follows him to subway and bonds with him again to save him from Dark Carnage. Narrowly escaping its grip, he reluctantly seeks help from Spider-Man and plans to non-lethally extract codices from all past hosts.

To test codex-extraction machine of The Maker, Reed Richards from an alternate universe, they plan on getting Norman Osborn out of Ravencroft Institute, leaving Dylan Brock and Normie Osborn with him at Rex Strickland's warehouse. With no hope of getting out alive, both Spidey and Venom gets viciously swarmed by minions of Dark Carnage.

When his machine is finished, The Maker insists on Normie to test it out but Dylan refuses to let him do so. As they were arguing, a proximity alarm goes off and Life Foundation symbiotes Agony, Lasher, Phage and Riot breaks in. They were sent here by Carnage to claim Normie Osborn's codex but The Maker holds them off with his techs.

Dylan and Normie takes shelter at the armory but Phage comes after them regardless only to get its neck snapped by Sleeper, most recent seventh spawn of Venom symbiote. Shortly after introducing himself to Dylan, he gets blasted off with a sonic wave from Maker and he proceeds to put it in a canister along with other Life Foundation symbiotes.

Dylan makes a plan to escape realizing that Maker will forcibly use his machine on Normie and freed Agony, Lasher, Phage and Riot to distract him. Before he could activate anti-symbiote defenses, they all bonds to him and turned him into Hybrid. Chasing after those kids, he came across Captain America, Spider-Man, Thing and Wolverine.

Amazing Spider-Man – Absolute Carnage | Comics

Cletus Kasady is back at his scariest as Carnage with Spider-Man standing between him and young Dylan Brock.

Wrapping up some unfinished business with Dr. Curt Connors as Amazing Spider-Man following events of "Hunted" has cost Peter Parker a date with his lover Mary Jane Watson and she now wants to pursue a career in movies once again as she gets an offer from a new film director after her recent encounter with Francine Frye AKA Electro.

He insists that MJ should take this acting job but is also bothered to stay far away from her for two-long months. In between helping out Aunt May to reestablish F.E.A.S.T. Center and dealing with bunch of A.I.M. goons alongside his younger sister Teresa Parker to rescue a captured agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., he missed her seeing off to airport.

Lately, Peter is being haunted by a secret tormentor, who introduces himself as Kindred and is using Mysterio as a pawn for his schemes. More recently, one of his deceased enemies Cletus Kasady AKA Carnage is revived by a cult and bonded him with a dragon-like symbiote called Grendel to summon Knull, God of the Symbiotes.

Things all started back when Spidey along with few other heroes were abducted by Beyonder for his "Secret Wars" and he was looking for an upgrade for his tattered outfit. All he got from that strange device was a black ball that shrouds his body like a costume in black and white, which turned out to be an alien symbiote named Klyntar.

amazing spider man absolute carnage cletus kasady grendel symbiote peter parker marvel comics nick spencer ryan ottley
Amazing Spider-Man – Absolute Carnage | Comics

Though he eventually managed to get rid of it but then it found another host in Eddie Brock and together they became Venom. That was only a beginning as soon his symbiote spawned a deadlier offspring called Carnage and more. Many heroes and people he knew became hosts for them in one occasion or another even for a brief time.

Each time Klyntar bonds with someone, it leaves a genetic footprint known as Codex, which Kasady is currently after. Intending to stop him from doing so, Spidey and Venom team-up to gather former symbiote hosts in an attempt to safely extract those and their rescue starts with Norman Osborn, who is locked up in Ravencroft Institute.

Carnage arrives with a horde of his minions to take Osborn in and overwhelm the heroes into running. They gather all heroes who were former host to Klyntar symbiote to get their codices out using a machine before Kasady could. Yet he showed up with an army, which forced Spidey to move Dylan Brock and Normie Osborn into safety.

He locks down Eddie's son and his godson to safety before symbiote wearing Osborn comes to hunt them down. Bonding with Grendel symbiote and believing him to be Cletus Kasady, Norman becomes much stronger than his Green Goblin persona and savagely beats down Spider-Man with an inch of his life with almost no effort.

However, Osborn was previously visited by Kindred in his cell, who claimed to be a victim of his evil ways when he was a human. Although he desperately wanted to punish Norman but seeing him being consumed by someone else's psyche, Kindred spares him and implanted a demonic centipede in his brain, so he couldn't kill Spidey either.

Too beaten up to get back on his feet and fight Carnage, Peter goes through a flashback of past events seeing how he was unable to save people he cared about like Flash Thompson, Gwen Stacy and Harry Osborn from him. When the madman tried to kill him, he gets incapacitated by Kindred's centipede and Pete got a second chance.

Avengers – War of the Realms | Comics

War of the Realms has broken out and Washington, D.C. has sent their best to protect nation's capital instead of The Avengers.

After a recent reformation, The Avengers were busy dealing with Russian super-hero team Winter Guard as well as Namor and his Defenders of the Deep. Meanwhile, U.S. government has assigned a newly revived Agent Phil Coulson, who has re-assembled Squadron Supreme of America as a response team to Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

Now that Frost Giants are rampaging through cities, members of all-new Squadron Supreme are called in to fight them off. Doctor Spectrum, Hyperion, Nighthawk, Power Princess and The Blur drove them outside of U.S. border, over to Canada. Coulson then instructs them to visit Ohio while having a celebration with Mephisto, Lord of Darkness.

When forces of Malekith, King of Dark Elves invade New York; all of its residents are teleported to Avengers Mountain by Doctor Strange. Gorilla-Man is called in by Black Panther to HQ from a secret meeting he was having with Ursa Major. He is tasked to take care of security system as their global network got hacked by Roxxon Energy Corporation.

Though he is attacked by a small group of Elves, he managed to tackle them and fixed power for The Avengers to fight back. Ka-Zar came to his rescue and he revealed of having a vision of Roxxon base being set in Antarctica. Agent Ken Hale apparently betrays his teammates by pledging his allegiance to Dracula and his Legion of the Unliving.

Avengers – War of the Realms | Comics

Ever since Avengers have fought The Final Host and She-Hulk was powered up by Celestials, her alter ego Jennifer Walters is having a tough time getting a grip over all that raw power and so, she tries meditating. However, Captain Marvel suggests her to unleash that fury as much as she can to help tackling a global invasion led by Malekith's army.

She goes to Australia, which has been taken over by trolls and let loose her green rage on them before facing off King Ulik. She beat him down so ruthlessly that has even Deadpool gets concerned about her unchecked temper. She then showed up in Antarctica to help Blade and his teammates in fighting B.E.R.S.E.R.K.E.R. Squad super-soldiers.

Daredevil is keeping watch on everything across ten realms since he has now become an all-seeing "God Without Fear" after being bestowed with cosmic powers of Asgardian god Heimdall and he warns Jen Walters of a coming war on them where she will be needed to explode with all her gamma rage after Malekith is defeated.

As she was talking with Matt Murdock, two more Frost Giants showed up threatening them and she knocks them out. Already struggling with unstable nature of her growing power, She-Hulk is unable to interpret his cryptic message. Malekith and his armies are eventually defeated at long last, granting Earth's Mightiest Heroes a sigh of relief.

As all heroes were taking a little time off to celebrate their latest victory at Avengers Mountain, King T'Challa goes to Pentagon to investigate the true motives of Phil Coulson. Black Panther enters at Sublevel 9 only to be surrounded by Nick Fury LMDs that he made quick work of and asks Agent Coulson about his Squadron Supreme of America.

Hyperion and his team showed up abruptly as they talk, stating their clear stand against anti-American Avengers. T'Challa also expresses his disbelief on their authenticity and newfound powers before teleporting away. Blade, along with Boy-Thing takes it upon himself to find out where Russians have kept Dracula and his followers hidden.

Amazing Spider-Man – Behind the Scenes | Comics

Mysterio is cooking something up as Spider-Man is taunted by an ominous bandaged figure and his Superior Foes return.

Ever since Peter Parker has started seeing his love of life Mary Jane Watson, he couldn't seem to catch a break in his personal life as well as Amazing Spider-Man. It started with a fake alien invasion by Mysterio, followed by Robot-Master and his Tri-Sentinels, Bar With No Name patrons, Thieves Guild of New York and Scorpion.

His most recent troubles came from Kraven the Hunter, who kidnapped a bunch of animal-themed villains and employed Arcade to arrange a grand hunt. During a face-off with last son of Kraven, a grim fate of MJ is shown to Spidey through a drug induced hallucination, caused by a green mist and he couldn't seem to shake that feeling off.

Thankfully, he came home to find her all right but a mysterious figure covered in bandages keeps taunting him from shadows. He takes Mary Jane for a night out but she notices him to be lost in thoughts and points that out. That centipede-carrying entity invaded his dreams and eventually revealed his name to Peter, startling him greatly.

In Ravencroft Institute, Quentin Beck AKA Mysterio was having a therapy session with his psychiatrist and narrating past events of his life that has lead to his suicide. Beck seems to be worried about a secret tormentor but is terrified to even name him but his consultant insists that he must face truth to clear out all of his delusions.

Amazing Spider-Man – Behind the Scenes | Comics

That demonic entity suddenly showed up there only to viciously killing his minion while his therapist escaped. Calling himself as "Kindred", he also did this to prevent Mysterio from revealing his true identity to Pete before its time. Beck's psychiatrist Dr. Ludwig Rinehart soon gets a visit from him as well and his scheme got busted.

It appears that, Quentin Beck had brainwashed his therapist Dr. Winhorst into believing that he was Mysterio and got him killed. Meanwhile, Spider-Man gets into major trouble by missing out on a date with Mary Jane when he went looking for Dr. Curt Connors in his warehouse and gets busy fighting a legion of self-replicating giant robots.

After his confrontation with last son of Kraven earlier in Central Park, Connors has been hiding here to keep his family safe. Without his inhibitor chip to keep him in check, he can transform back to Lizard at any time and do horrible things that he will regret but Spidey managed to convince him to give it another shot for sake of his son Billy.

MJ called her friend and Peter's ex-girlfriend Carlie Cooper to accompany her and they met her old showbiz rival, Melanie Daniels. She invites MJ and Carlie to her show that got hijacked by Francine Frye AKA Electro, who took the aspiring actress hostage for ransom from internet but Mary Jane successfully foiled that plan with help from Carlie.

Following her rescue of Melanie, media makes MJ famous once again and her former agent calls her for a role in a movie. Unbeknown to her, Mysterio is serving as director and producer for that film based on a script given to him by Kindred.

Mayor Wilson Fisk sent cops to take Francine into custody when their vehicle is attacked by all-female Sinister Syndicate, who recruited her into their team. Beetle, Electro, Lady Octopus, Scorpia, Trapstr and White Rabbit decides s to fight patriarchy in organized crime profession by going after known super-villain Boomerang together.

In an epilogue, Spider-Man was sitting on a rooftop and eating pizza as he looks at a flock of pigeons making rounds. He decides to go back to work after finishing up his final slice and offers a nearby one his crust, which it snatches away. He shockingly sees the bird transforming into a mini-symbiote monster before devouring his meal.

Venom – War of The Realms | Comics

While chaos reigns across Manhattan, Eddie Brock tries to stop the "War of Realms" without his Venom symbiote.

Shortly after discovering his cancer returning, Eddie Brock asks The Maker to remove his symbiote and it ends up escaping into a crowd. "War of The Realms" reaches to Earth in the meantime, causing death and destruction around. Eddie tries to find a safe place for his son Dylan Brock as monsters running rampant in New York City.

Now that he has no Venom symbiote to keep him safe, Brock plans to take Dylan to abandoned safehouse of Rex Strickland. They came across a Fire Demon nearing an alleyway and patiently waited for that monster to go away. Finding cover nearing a warehouse, Eddie sees a family being chased by Dark Elves that he decides to help.

He tries to drive those Elves to him to let their would-be victims escape and engages them in a brawl only to get stabbed by them. Leaving him to bleed out, they chase after civilians and then Dylan gets spotted by one Elf who attempted to kill him but got his neck broken by timely arrival of Brock while being observed by War Witches of Malekith.

Intrigued by his bloodlust and rage, one of the War Witches comes to Brock with an agenda when he arrives at Rex's safehouse. She casually melts a gun Eddie pointed at her and claims that he doesn't want a firearm but something else. So, she offers him a mystical Asgardian crystal called Dreamstone to conjure up a weapon that he desires.

Venom – War of The Realms | Comics

Though Dylan warns him not to trust her, he reaches out to it and transforms into a Venom-like symbiote creature with crystal spikes and Nordic runes inscribed on its body, which feels very similar to his other, yet quite different. It starts to heal his internal wounds but Brock bites off an arm of War Witch when she asked him to serve Malekith.

Keeping his ward behind safehouse doors, Eddie goes out to fulfill his duty as a "Lethal Protector" of innocents. He finds a group of Dark Elves torturing civilians beside a troll and his newfound symbiote fills him with bloodlust. To settle scores of their previous encounter, Venom mercilessly rips them apart and decapitated the troll as well.

He realizes that his dark emotions are being manifested by power of Dreamstone and Brock even introduces himself to a civilian as Venom by referring himself to "I" instead of usual "we". Elsewhere, the hurt War Witch feels humiliated at Eddie's betrayal and she attempts to seek a new pawn in a dark apartment, who turns out to be Jack O'Lantern.

Eddie Brock continues to clear streets amidst an all-out chaos and his suit grows stronger as he flips over a Roxxon tank. An imposter who was humiliated by Venom in past, Jack is powered by a Dreamstone crystal and goes after his enemy. He hits up Brock with a burst of flame and mocks him for not do away with his symbiote's great weakness to fire.

Eddie doesn't even flinch by his enhanced suit or flaming bat skeleton and instead recalls his memory of almost killing previous Jack O'Lantern. He then sics a pair of Wild Hunt hounds on Venom when he wasn't able to get an upper hand. As he was giving chase to Jack throughout the city, he suddenly gets smashed with a mace of a Frost Giant.

His feeling of concern and love for Dylan starts making him weak and so, Brock recalls on more bad memories. He grows big to match sizes with them to finish them off and his symbiote even adapts to Jack's attack by shaping into Asgardian armor. Eddie's growing rage gives War Witch hope of eventually turning him into a war-puppet for Malekith.

Amazing Spider-Man – Hunted | Comics

Kraven the Hunter returns to hunt and this time he is after animal-themed villains of Spider-Man for one big hunt.

After rekindling his relationship with Mary Jane Watson once again, life was going good for Peter Parker. He has crossed paths with mercenaries Black Ant and Taskmaster a few times as Amazing Spider-Man. Taking down those baddies, he didn't notice that these two are kidnapping some of those bad guys from his rogue's gallery.

In one of their recent encounter, he saw them chasing after Rhino and they managed to bag Aleksei Sytsevich when he was busy saving Aunt May. What he doesn't know is that these super-villains are being delivered to Kraven the Hunter, who has returned once again and teamed-up with evil genius Arcade for a secret scheme.

Going back to Savage Land, Kraven decided to start a new family and begins hunting humanoid Ani-Men, created by High Evolutionary. Seeing his beloved creatures getting slaughtered, he complied with Sergei and made 87 clones of him. These kids grew into adults pretty quickly and he sent them all throughout world to become hunters.

Meanwhile, he spent time building a fortune and reclaimed his kingdom in anticipation of their arrival but only one of them showed up. It appears that, the last son of Kraven has hunted down all his brethren to prove himself worthy, to which his father felt proud but his heir refused to settle down just yet without killing Spidey.

He then explains his son that nature of hunt has been changed and therefore, they should change their way as well. Due to climate change and increased number of poachers, their kingdom is dying now but instead of hunting these unworthy humans, he wants them to hunt super criminals that take inspiration from animals.

Amazing Spider-Man – Hunted | Comics

These villains have taken their names from the beasts without honoring their soul and Kraven wants them to feel how it is like to be hunted. He attends a party of wealthy elites of society hosted by Arcade and following introduction, offered them the greatest hunt of their lives by arranging for them to hunt down vicious baddies.

Previously in a family dinner with Mary Jane and Peter Parker, young Billy Connors had a heated argument with his father, Curt Connors and he sneaks up to get into a party with friends but gets kidnapped by Black Ant and Taskmaster. The Lizard contacts Pete to ask him send Spider-Man after him and help find his son if possible.

Billy was found by Black Cat at New York port who got baited by her old partner Hammerhead. Before getting knocked out by those two mercenaries, she sends a message through a modified Spider-Tracer that Spider-Man gave her years ago. He immediately ruses to their location while she tries her best to comfort Billy trapped in Plaza Hotel.

In his weakened state, Spidey managed to reach to coordinates sent by Felicia but sees no one there and then he suddenly gets ambushed by Last son of Kraven. A mysterious green mist is released in air that made him hallucinate about a grim future where he sees Mary Jane lying in blood and he gets beaten senseless in the mean time.

He wakes up later in Central Park wearing his infamous black costume and surrounded by all of those abducted villains. Believing him to be responsible for their capture, Scorpion attacks him but their fight is very short-lived when a group of Kraven-Bots came shooting at them all and everyone quickly start running for their lives at once.

Beetle tried to escape for her life but is hit by a large force field, which traps everyone within boundaries of Central Park as a prey. Inside of Plaza Hotel, Arcade invites wealthy elite group of hunters to join him and explains how they can take part in a great hunt by controlling an army of Kraven-like androids using advanced VR device.

Spider-Man was able to save Gibbon from an angry mob of Hunter-robots but was convinced to side with Vulture. In a shocking turn of events, Taskmaster ended up betraying his pal Black Ant and zaps him for a huge bounty. Back at home, MJ waits for Peter to return and worries for him as she is being secretly watched by a mysterious entity.

The Lizard has managed to get his way into this chaos looking for his son and encounters young son of Kraven in combat. Spidey made a shocking discovery coming across Black Ant of what has been originally planned here for those hunters. Then Sergei Kravinoff eventually showed up revealing his true intention about all this to Web-Head.

Amazing Spider-Man – Hunted

Bringing everyone's favorite Wall-Crawler back to his roots for modern-day audience, writer Nick Spencer (Ant-Man – Second-Chance Man, Doctor Strange – Damnation) continues his run in "Hunted", fourth ongoing storyline from Amazing Spider-Man monthly series for Marvel Comics, collecting issues #16-23, #16.HH and #18.HU-20.HU.

Spencer has teamed-up with artists Gerardo Sandoval (Amazing Spider-Man – Venom Inc., Venom – Homecoming), Humberto Ramos (Spider-Man – Big Time, Spider-Man – Dying Wish) and Ryan Ottley (Haunt, Invincible) for main storyline.

Kraven's Biggest Hunt

Additional penciler Alberto Alburquerque, Chris Bachalo (Captain America – Homeland, Uncanny X-Men – Revolution), Cory Smith, Iban Coello (Age of Apocalypse – Warzones!, Venom – The Abyss) and Ken Lashley (Uncanny X-Men – Apocalypse Wars, X-Men Gold – Evil Empires) has worked on side stories and one-shot issues.

Taking care of his family in Savage Land, Kraven the Hunter wishes to rebuild his legacy with help from High Evolutionary. One of his sons managed to take down all of his siblings and together they arranged a great hunt. However, instead of going after his loved ones they went after all of Spidey's costumed enemies for a grand plan.

Many references to past events that leads back to both Kraven and The Lizard from "Kraven's Last Hunt", "The Gauntlet", "Grim Hunt" and "The Clone Conspiracy" were made throughout entire course of the story. Nick Spencer would likely to come back with another Web-Head adventure next time in "Behind The Scenes" storyline.
